President of Liberia

“That first risk…
That first challenge…
That first responsibility.
That first experience in which fear is a factor -
You have to take that first step forward and rise above it.
After that, as you move on,
The fear diminishes.
You reach a place where you have complete freedom from fear.
What is the objective?
I’m willing to take the risk that gets me there.”
